The R.R. Smith Center for History and Art is closed to the public until at least April 23, 2020. Please support your local businesses including non-profit organizations. Staunton Augusta Art Center, Augusta County Historical Society, Historic Staunton Foundation and The American Shakespeare Center all have employees. These organizations pay the rent and utilities to keep this facility operating. Without our usual income sources that depend upon public education events and fundraisers, 2020 is a challenging year. Thank you – keep healthy – know and keep your neighbor safe - record your experience for history – produce art – tend your gardens – repair your home - make your historic buildings and neighborhood shine.
